When you have a wedding in the Mediterranean, you don’t really need to obsess over elaborate designs and decorations. The scenery and stunning venues here will do most of the job for you. Nonetheless, the use of thoughtful and elegant details throughout the day can help tie a concept together and make your nuptials really special. Let me show you three of my favorite current themes, all of which were inspired by the wedding invitations and color choices of Basic Invite.
If you’re like me, you’ll probably want a coherent look and feel for your wedding, starting with the Save The Date and up to the Thank You note to be sent to guests after the event. Basic Invite‘s designs are fully customizable and can be adapted to your own unique wedding concept. They have beautiful choices for your Mediterranean nuptials, and let you create a tailor-made card within minutes. Here are a few ideas…
1. Olive-inspired wedding
I cannot get enough of wedding portraits taken at sunset in an olive grove, or simple white cakes decorated with olive branches. From Spain to Greece, olive trees are a distinctly Mediterranean plant, and make for a rustic but also elegant add-on to your wedding. Olive decor is well combined with kraft paper and whimsical calligraphy. Or how about adding a watercolor wreath resembling an olive branch?
2. Lemon-inspired wedding
Yellow is a bold choice of color, but certainly a beautiful one. How about a wedding inspired by the lemon trees of the Amalfi Coast? Use lemons in your floral decor and offer little bottles of limoncello as favors, and your guests will love you. With Basic Invite you can choose your favorite invitation design and then adjust the color to match your palette. Perfect.
3. Portuguese tile-inspired wedding
Ceramics and tiles are an important part of Mediterranean artisan culture. The dark blue envelope with the patterned inlay inspired this last wedding theme, based on Portuguese tiles. You can either give it a rustic or whimsical twist, or choose a classic font to make it more elegant. Either way, the 35 different envelope and custom pocket colors from Basic Invite will make it so easy to create your very own combination of hues that matches your theme.
